Guys I'm fairly new to alienware. I was thinking of using the SPDIF port for surround sound but I've seen these posts online about how when the SPDIF port is used ..the mother board gets damaged and the speakers don't turn back on.
I've been reading that this happens when people use the spdif adapter which comes with the laptop. Anyone have any kind of experience regarding this? What if I were to use a 3rd party spdif/toslink adapter or something?

This is why I decided to use the USB plug surround sounds style head phones on my m18x , on a personal note I have to say they seem to work well for my gaming , but I'm not a big sound geek lol but I am deadly at bf3 hahhahhaa
